The Organic Puppet Theatre. Health Activities Book.
Schultz, Terry Louis; Sorenson, Linda M.
The Organic Puppet Theatre is a creative medium for the classroom, home, day care center, hospital, community center, and clinic. It is designed for children in the early elementary years. The objective of the activity is to acquaint children with the functions of the various organs of the body, how they interact, and how they are affected by poor health habits. Seven chapters introduce seven individual body organs. Each chapter begins with background information. Individual organ patterns are provided, with easy step-by-step directions on how to construct them. The puppets are constructed with inexpensive, everyday objects. (JD)
